18/52 “That’ll do, donkey”

This little donkey seemed so friendly. I think he thought I was going to feed him. The two horses in the pasture bolted but he came right up to the fence and stuck his nose all up in my business. I tried stepping from side to side to get a good profile, and hopefully good eye to eye contact, but when I moved right, he moved right. When I moved left, he moved left. I think he wanted to eat my dangling lens cap. When I didn’t deliver, he gave me this “donkey on the edge” look, so I took the shot, said “That’ll do, donkey” and in two shakes of a donkey tail, I bolted.

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.

Sheila T Illustrated finally hit the 100 mark!

After 6 months, I am thrilled to welcome my 100th reader to my blog. (Although I now follow almost twice that.)

Before I proceed with this post, I want to thank each and every one of my readers … you know who you are … for all your comments, advice, tutorials, compliments and validation!

To mark this milestone in the life of my blog, I’d like to give Extra! Extra! recognition today to my 100th reader: Golappan on WordPress at ClickdPic.

Golappan is from India, presently working in Dubai. He has only been blogging since March and already has half the all-time views it took me 6 months to achieve. I don’t know how many followers he has, but I encourage my other 99 WordPress and 5 comment readers to check out his blog – in particular, an excellent slideshow on his grandmother’s village.

I share here his Gravatar and About statement: “I was not at all interested in creating blogs & sharing my thoughts, lazy in such things. But i was inspired & admired by a lovely & cute couple about blogging. I am not a professional photographer, don’t wanna be professional either. Interested in photography, but don’t know a single word about it. But clicked many pics by using a regular cyber shot camera & mobile cameras. Just love clicking through a common man’s eyes on what he likes.”
